Language

Standard

*
things cluttered

I move them around

just a bit as to call them

to make a list of prisoners

.

to make them feel less

lonely as my mind

speaks to them

their language

Time And Places

Standard

*
those are places
geographical ones

pins on paper
tips of pens

thoughts of now
lived before

in a dream
we walked

not crossing
eyes shut

if we look the
weft increases

knowledge of
different places

A Luminous Day

Standard

*

we are here
softly abandoned

glaring at the shadow of
an airplane on the ground

one of those luminous day
where every detail is out

for count and thanksgiving
following a time dark as

the night upon which we
both struggled with

eyes wide open to
no avail in fear

in enchanted bliss
here silently I’m

The Last Summer Sun

Standard

*

I turn my shoulders

to the last summer sun

inconsolable for fall

at the door and winter

following they get into

my bones and stay too

long I try resignation

to no avail on my

mutilated wings

Standard

2.

sometimes you are just
walking minding your own
business when something almost
invisible floats in front of you

usually a bit on the side not exactly
in front you need to pay attention
and gently pick the poem
out of the air
